When performing various actions on a clean install of Ubuntu 10.10 on my web server, I kept being presented with the following message:
perl: warning: Setting locale failed. perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings: LANGUAGE = "en_US:en", LC_ALL = (unset), LANG = "en_US.UTF-8" are supported and installed on your system. perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").
After some googling, many people (in this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=138022) suggested:
sudo locale-gen sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales
however the solution that worked for me was:
export LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8 export LANG=en_US.UTF-8 export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 locale-gen en_US.UTF-8 dpkg-reconfigure locales
You might need to reset your machine before changes take effect:
sudo shutdown -r now
